Blankets and comics. My two favorite things.
To answer your question about gift reciprocity, I really haven't had an issue with giving someone something and feeling like it didn't matter to them. I'm uh...not so great at the gift thing. I'm one of those well...gotta find something because it's, you know, kinda what you're supposed to do
types. (It's not that I don't value giving
, I do love making people happy! But I'm so bad at getting people gifts!)
So when I give a gift, it's usually to someone I'd give a gift to anyway
, and if they don't seem particularly crazy about it or forget to thank me (that really hasn't happened much though) I just think well...at least I jumped that social hoop!
